Donald Trump, “beloved and sinless leader!”

By reading news on the internet, I bumped into an article from Master`s graduate S.E. Cupp, a journalist for Cable National News (CNN) on presidential candidate Donald Trump. Even though Cupp is a conservative columnist, I think she is a good source for this issue. I believe her to be a good source not only for the fact that she has a Master`s degree in Arts from the New York`s University, but mainly due to the fact that she is willing to attack the head candidate of the political party for whom she is writing in the news.
Although there are already a lot of different news and articles on Trump`s politics, this article caught my attention due to the importance of the subject. In her article, Cupp comments on Trump`s allegation about the fact that he “could shoot someone on the 5th avenue and lose no voters, nor popularity” Cupp explains how disturbing she things this situation is. Even though Trump admitted later on CNN that he was joking, the journalist is sure that if the candidate would put his words into acts, he would indeed lose no popularity among his partisans.
Cupp goes deeper in her assumption by comparing Trump to other charismatic figures such as Beatle`s head singer John Lenon, who declared that “the Beatles were more popular than Jesus” and got a raise in ratings, or communist leader Joseph Stalin that killed a huge amount of his own people within his reign, but still remained in power until he died.
Although it is difficult for someone to change how another person`s essence or behavior. Such as one psychologist could not change Trump`s politics or behavior, or the behavior of all his followers. However it is through knowledge and the study of history that people manage to learn about past mistakes and avoid doing the same mistakes in the future. There might not be an American who could change the point of view that Donald Trump presents, but I believe that it is the duty of every citizen that can get a proper education, to seek such an education. This way people could get the knowledge they need to understand how such thoughts as Trump`s thoughts can be dangerous and lead to a dreadful future.
